ClearSteps Treatment for Onychomycosis
“Clearsteps” Onychomycosis treatment is a revolutionary means to cure fungal nail infections, in a patient friendly, quick and effective way, utilising Nd:YAG laser light.
The laser has no effect on healthy tissue and healthy nail will be visible with in four weeks.
The Laser light heats evenly throughout the depth of the affected nail and skin tissue, effectively weakening and killing the parasitic fungi which have infected the nail.
ClearSteps – how does it work?
Deep, pulse-profile heating of the nail bed stimulates the killing of parasitic fungus. The natural growth and immune processes of the body are then able to restore the nail to its pristine state. Compared to traditional methods, the effects of laser light spread evenly throughout the tissue and are not subject to either the limits of chemical diffusion, as are topical’s, or the induction of hepatoxic side effects, as is the case with oral medications.
The procedure can be performed in three simple steps:
Step 1: Filing down the nail. During onychomycosis the nail will become deformed and overgrown, it may also thicken. Filing down the nail allows laser light to fully penetrate into the treatment site.
Step 2: Laser treatment – nail. The patient should feel a slight heating sensation throughout the nail.
Step 3: Laser treatment – tissues surrounding the nail. Parasitic fungus is eliminated in all the tissue surrounding the nail to prevent recurrence.
